399. Maturing Ideas

So one of the dangerous things about allowing yourself more free time is not the potential income you will lose from not working hard enough. It is all the ideas you allow yourself to get, which might actually work, about how you could better make money in the future.

I feel a bit … sad about all the time I have used in posts last year describing my frustrations with my own business.… Read more

392. Three Decisions about My Business Direction that Will Move

Not it is not new year’s evening. It is actually Jan 6, when this is being written.

You know the story by now: I have been swamped, or feeling like that recently, so therefore we travel back and take the time to do a series of list posts again. I figure they might do some good in giving me a chance to review and reflect deeper on where I have been and where I am going before that big sum-up in post no.… Read more

373. Time and Heart

Only had a little work for a returning client this morning, so I spent some of the remaining work time thinking seriously about the future – even though that was mildly angst-inducing.

Okay, that was morose.… Read more

259. Whatever and Courage

After my recent stress-episode I wrote Big Photographer client about what limits I would impose on my email-time and pro bono work for him in the future. After which he promptly fired me.

After all the times I’ve had to swallow my pride to get that money and change myself, not the situation, because I felt it was necessary – and wait until I could afford to quit … he does it for me.… Read more

254. Doing

So today started with an argument. I don’t recall much of the substance since perhaps there wasn’t any. But I was frustrated that I could not find a sock, some clothes for Jay and that the apartment still looked messy, while I had to find something else for Char before she went out and we could hardly find time to get some milk on bottle for Saturday when I am to look after Jay alone.… Read more
